Ion Electric Ice Augers
The First High-Performance Electric Ice Auger
As the inventors of the first lithium-ion-powered electric ice auger, we've learned what works and what doesn't. Over the years we've continued to improve ION's design and performance, creating a proven system for making ice fishing easier and more efficient.
- Most Tested
- Most Proven
- Most Reliable
ION electric ice augers eliminate the need for mixing gas and oil, meaning no more spills in your vehicle or on the ice. They are also exhaust-free, allowing you to drill in your shack without worrying about fumes.
All ION ice augers cut incredibly smoothly thanks to their blade positions and centering ring that meters the depth of each cut. ION X models incorporate a weldless cast-bottom for more even & smoother cutting.
ION takes time and effort out of ice fishing by eliminating the need to scoop slush and ice out of your hole after drilling. Simply press the reverse button and flush all of the slush down and away from your hole.
Starting at 21 lb, ION electric ice augers are far lighter than other power auger options. This gives anglers more relief when pulling a sled behind them, drilling holes, or carrying their auger across a lake.
Drill More Holes
Up to 66 holes through two feet of ice on a single charge.
ION is the world's first high-performance electric ice auger. ION gives you power-auger performance without the hassles. ION is powerful and fast. The 8 inch ION will drill up to 40 holes through 2 feet of ice on a single charge. Model 19150 also has the reverse feature, eliminating the need for an ice skimmer to clean the hole after drilling. ION features 21st-century lithium ion technology, the most advanced battery technology available today. No gas, no oil, no fumes - just charge your battery, head to the lake, and start drilling.

I was ice fishing with some pals that were using converted, commercial grade drills with auger attachments and was impressed with how light and fast they were. So I decided to move on from my old, loud, heavy, messy gas auger. But I figured rather than get all the expensive conversion parts, plus buying a $300 drill, I’d just go and get an electric auger. Same difference, right?
I read all the reviews and settled on the Ion. I got the 8” model for $500, so I figured that was a good deal. Unfortunately, it must be a first generation model because the design flaws are many.
I checked the blades and they were sharp. I charged the battery to full charge and took the unit up to Maine for a maiden attempt. We had 20” of smooth ice. I took out my Ion expecting a light, quick, clean way to drill holes. As my Maine friends gathered around to watch, I had to exert all my weight downward to get it to finally bite into the ice, (it doesn't have a center spike to keep it in place). After it stopped hopping all around everywhere and finally bit, I proceeded to drill… and drill… and drill… All my Maine friends started laughing and pointing. One of them grabbed his gas auger, started it on the first pull, walked over and drilled a hole next to me in 6 seconds flat and walked away laughing. Meanwhile I continued drilling… and drilling… Humiliating.
I got 9-1/2 holes before it died. Took me about an hour, including periods of rest inbetween holes. Having to exert so much pressure to get it to drill sufficiently is tiring. It seemed to take forever, (now I know why they fast-forward the guy drilling holes in the promo video). Luckily my buddies had their gas augers with them.
When the battery is inserted, the unit is not light. It’s still pretty heavy, maybe a pound or two lighter than my gas auger. And the handle bars with safety lever and power button on the same side is a ridiculous design. Unless you are tall with gorilla arms and big hands, the unit is difficult to operate. I’m fairly short with smaller hands, so when the unit is drilling and vibrating, I can barely keep contact around the handlebar with both the lever and power button depressed at the same time. When the unit is drilling, my fingers keep slipping off the button. After a few holes it makes your hand sore. Not the most comfortable thing to use. Also, the videos show people drilling with the handlebars facing out, away from you (u). I found that I had to turn it around and hold it like a bike (n) and exert all my weight downward against the battery in order to get it to drill with any effectiveness .
Suffice it to say, I won’t be getting rid of my gas auger after all. (Sigh). $500 is no small investment. And Ion replacement parts are proprietary and needlessly expensive. But I guess I’m stuck with it. Luckily I live in a place where the ice doesn’t usually get thicker than 8-12” most seasons. So I’ll try to get some use out of it. But when I travel north, this unit just can’t handle it. I’ll have to stick with gas. I sure as heck will never need to use the extension. I can’t imagine how long it’d take to drill a 3-foot hole…
